Why do you want to 'keep it in'? The bricks will act as a heat store and release the energy when the fire goes out. True, some will be lost to the garage but not enough to justify insulating the wall.

The ideal solution would be to stop it getting INTO the wall in the first instance. Doing this would mean decreasing the distance between fire and wall and there are rules to follow re the spacing so the issue becomes more complicated.
